Patiala, May 17

Construction of many shops near Sanauri Adda in the city continues despite demolition orders issued by the Municipal Corporation Commissioner. Illegal construction continues in the city while residents grapple with Covid pandemic.

As many as four shops have been constructed. Ground has been dug up for starting work of more shops adjacent to them.

As a matter of fact, the Municipal Corporation (MC) had constructed a Sabzi Mandi near Sanauri Adda recently. All vegetable vendors from Old Sabzi Mandi were shifted to the new site from the Ragho Majra area. As such illegal construction near the site, which is already receiving footfall, has started.

Meanwhile, Varun Jindal, vice-president, Bharatiya Janata Party city unit, said, “Even a construction plan can’t be passed at the site. But, Corporation officials have allowed construction here. The land is a lease site. As such no construction plan can be passed for this site.” “Similar illegal construction is being carried out in various parts of the city,” he added.

Meanwhile, when contacted, MC Commissioner Poonamdeep Kaur said, “The matter has come to our notice. A notice was issued after which department officials put-up file regarding the matter. I ordered demolition of shops few days ago.”
